using molecular data for epidemiological inference: assessing the prevalence of trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense in tsetse in serengeti, tanzania.measuring the prevalence of transmissible trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense in tsetse populations is essential for understanding transmission dynamics, assessing human disease risk and monitoring spatio-temporal trends and the impact of control interventions. although an important epidemiological variable, identifying flies which carry transmissible infections is difficult, with challenges including low prevalence, presence of other trypanosome species in the same fly, and concurrent detection of i ...201222303496
quantifying heterogeneity in host-vector contact: tsetse (glossina swynnertoni and g. pallidipes) host choice in serengeti national park, tanzania.identifying hosts of blood-feeding insect vectors is crucial in understanding their role in disease transmission. rhodesian human african trypanosomiasis (rhat), also known as acute sleeping sickness is caused by trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense and transmitted by tsetse flies. the disease is commonly associated with wilderness areas of east and southern africa. such areas hold a diverse range of species which form communities of hosts for disease maintenance. the relative importance of different ...201627706167
